*HCI for Accurate, Impartial and Transparent Journalism: Challenges and Solutions*

CHI Workshop, May 5, 2019, Glasgow, Scotland

We invite position papers and project descriptions for the CHI 2019 workshop “HCI for Accurate, Impartial and Transparent Journalism: Challenges and Solutions”. <>This one-day workshop is a multidisciplinary forum of problem-solving and collaboration for academics and practitioners in the intersection of HCI and journalism.

The key question in this workshop is: How can HCI support accurate, impartial and transparent journalism? In this interactive, collaborative workshop, participants will actively engage in identifying ways for HCI to support journalistic goals and developing a shared roadmap for HCI for accurate, transparent and impartial journalism.

HCI and journalism researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry are invited to submit a position paper or a project description in the CHI Extended Abstract format (max. 4 pages). The paper should discuss the challenges in design, implementation and evaluation of technologies in journalism and present solutions how HCI can address these challenges. If the submission is a project description, it should describe the project objectives and discuss the challenges in the project execution in the framework of the workshop goals. Please add a link to the project and supply visuals with your submission if possible.

The submissions will be reviewed by the organizers and evaluated based on the contribution quality and the applicants’ diversity. To ensure cross-pollination across disciplinary and practice boundaries, we will compose a diverse group of participants with different backgrounds.

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop and register for both the workshop and one day of the conference. Please submit your paper to (HCIAndJournalism /at/ <mailto:(HCIAndJournalism /at/> by February 12, 2019.

*Workshop topics*

We welcome diverse submissions with making links across practitioner and academic perspectives, technologies, empirical contexts, theories and methods. Submissions should cover issues related to HCI’s role in enabling accurate, impartial and transparent journalism, including, but not limited to, the following:

  * The design of user interfaces and user experiences for supporting
    accuracy, impartiality and transparency in journalism

  * The role of design in mitigating misinformation and establishing and
    maintaining credibility in journalism

  * The design and development of workflows that blend journalists and
    algorithms in the production and/or curation of news information

  * Application of design methodologies, such as value-sensitive design,
    in development of tools to support journalistic activity

  * Identification of methods and theories for effectively examining
    HCI’s role in supporting journalistic goals

  * The design of interactive news media applications, platforms,
    services, tools, or content
